Interviews in Sunnyside

This afternoon we drove down to Sunnyside from Othello on a road we’ve never traveled.  It felt like we were driving through Siberia.  Sage brush and tumbleweeds as far as you could see, all coated in white ice crystals.  It was a spectacular sight.

And here are the Elders who greeted us this afternoon when we arrived in Sunnyside!  2017-1-13-interviews-sunnyside-4Very funny!2017-1-13-interviews-sunnyside-6
